Volunteers Assemble! It' Open Streets Minneapolis 2014!

Open Streets Minneapolis is here!

The Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition is proud to announce that we are now accepting volunteers for Open Streets Minneapolis 2014! We will be transforming our city’s streets through six Open Streets events this summer, and we want your volunteer power!

Last year we had over four hundred volunteers help make Open Streets Minneapolis 2013 happen, and together we drew approximately 30,000 people on more than six miles of streets across the city. Check out the City Pages’ photos for an idea of last year’s fun. To repeat our success, we need you as a volunteer in 2014!

This year we are pumping up the action from just two 2012 Open Streets MPLS events to SIX 2014 Open Streets MPLS events, May through September. This year’s Open Streets Minneapolis will be hosted on:

- The proposed North Minneapolis Greenway (May 31st)  

- Lyndale Avenue (June 8th)

- Central Avenue NE (July 27th)

- Franklin Avenue (August 17th)

- Nicolette Avenue (September 14th)

- Lowry Avenue N (September 20th)

Sign me up!


We need your help to make these events great! Volunteers can help with everything from rolling out sod for the greenway experience, to facilitating chalk art activities as a street monitor, capturing photos of the event, helping us keep the street clean and car free, giving away high fives and more! Sign up now for the location and shift of your choice!

We need 200 volunteers to sign up for the first two Open Streets Minneapolis events of the year. Help us kick off the summer right by volunteering for a couple hours at the first Open Streets MPLS event on Saturday, May 31st for the North Minneapolis Greenway Experience. If you aren't free May 31st, sign up for the Lyndale event on June 8th to take part in the fun!

It’s fun to volunteer with friends. Bring a small team from work, a group of your friends, or your family clan to volunteer for a shift! We can coordinate times and tasks for your crew -- just contact us at [email protected] or 612.810.0079.

Help promote open streets and recruit volunteers! Share this link with your friends, family, colleagues, neighborhood groups, and everyone else you know (strangers are OK too).
